Stir


Dear You,

I never fell in love with you.
I just fell.


Love,

Me, Liar.

I am sending you a very nice greetings. And than I go away. I am leaving, goodbye!

Or hate me !

Janet Dibbydabby.com illustrator said...

I love your illustration

Nicole said...

it's really touching me...
love it!

are you ok so far? :-)
*hugs*

Ces said...

Poor John. Is he going to write a cheesy novel now and say you betrayed him? This illustration poetry is superb.

By the way, I wanted to say this:

Not only can substitute x without asking y
I can replace it with z
Refuse to q just to go p
I c to b me
Exclaim g instead of saying f
Be i because i am not j
Unlike k who rode the l
With m n exclaimed o
What the heck u and i
Let's sit down to t
Shall we? Oui!

it moves me so much....

martinealison said...

Je suis là semblable à votre adorable petit bout de femme, dans ma tasse de thé, je me prélasse avant de me rendre à l'atelier... J'adore ce petit oiseau des îles, son pseudo prince charmant qui vient se pencher et ose lui susurrer, dire ou crier je t'aime!...
Les petits parachutes sont là et clament l'espoir...
Gros bisous

Zlatica said...

Lovely :)

Karen said...

lovely!

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

Just beautiful!

Horacio said...

Very cute bird, so kind Queen!
I wish I have a cup like that just to...

Ilaria Benedetti said...

Little Devil, once again you surprise me! This is really great!

C.B. said...

Adore the bird with crown. Lovely work!

art is jokken said...

I see a little face...above the parachute

Steve E said...

Stir if you must--but gently. I do not want to spill. And please drop a square of HERSHEY©
into the cup--I LOVE shocolaht!

WHY replace X with Y? Here is the correct equation X+Y=C (as in C? I told you so!!!)

If this doesn't cheer U--I have 'more' (like the radio guy who is describing the 78 different kinds of venereal diseases, and say, "Here's Chet,. who has MORE!"

Enjoy this day...Please! For the x, and y, Ces, and me!

Copying this to "Nurse Betty" aka Ces, so she can learn 'new' math.

Steve E said...

In truth, Mita--I hate myself for making light of your distress, that pain in the depth of you. I believe even when y appears, it will be many moons before y could, if ever, replace x.

HEE-AW, HEE-AW, HEE-AW...don't know Y they call me Jackass.

PEACE, Dear One!

Krystal said...

It's a beautiful beautiful piece :) smile, friend.

Steve E said...

Oh yes the piece of art...Wow! This is Reeeal Illustration Poetry.

I love it, love it, the workmanship, the parachute(s) the crown of (x?)...but i have difficulty seeing anything but the pathos which hold me, entrance-like. Her countenance of hopelessness..helplessness.

Underneath though, she IS strong, "paddling her own canoe". The Peep in the boat--the artist--IS a true witch--grin! he just could not (yet) conjure her wish, could not discover the proper mix of crow's eyelash (just a dash!) to toenail of frog, sprinkled on top, just a few.

OK, as art is jokken wrote, above: I am leaveing. Goodbye! But we do part in......
PEACE!

ruth said...

This is beautiful.

Jack Foster said...

Hey Mita, Your words remind me of a song by 10 CCs called “I’m Not in Love”. Great post! Love the insignificant significance of the size compared to the background. Very NICE! Wonderful work Mita! So lovely! I just stopped by before heading off to Santa Fe, for vacation. God bless and have a great week!

Anthropomorphica said...

Beautiful! Both words and picture. Adrift in a tea cup both scary and exciting!
By the way, your "About Me" page left me giggling ;)

Fedulab said...

It's beautiful!
Very good
^_^

ti-igra said...

Wow!!! Dearrr!!! So Beautiful! I am also swim in the boat! Feel aroma of freedom!
Love, Love, Love!
Hugs to you, dear! :-)

Ces said...

Steve is making me laugh. Hahahahaha!

Carolina said...

This is very beautiful.

Miss Rosette Brune said...

oh so lovely
well done again
the love letter is wonderful too

Juan said...

Fantastic, as always!

audrey said...

You are brilliant, Mita. You have a very special mind.
This illustration is wonderful - the background is beautiful! I don't know how you do it - you keep outdoing yourself!!

rossichka said...

We have a saying in Bulgaria: "A storm in a glass of water". We use it when someone's too much affected and his reactions are exaggerated. This outburst lasts for quite a short time and there's no effect after all...
Well, watching at this girl, swimming in a cup, I'm just thinking that her emotional storm is over - the sky is clear, full of balloons. And maybe she has to stir pretty well her feelings, passions and dreams, to look around and discover that she is a person who's been admired and valued - she must only break the spell...
I like the polysemy (I hope I'm using the right word!) of your words... The use of commas and the order of the words in the signature!!
I absolutely like this drawing, Mita! Your emotional world reflects in such an amazing way upon your at!

rossichka said...

...ART...

Steve E said...

You are not going to fool me--I see your comments even when they are on another's pages.

HEY! Is Ces back "on"? Thought we lost her for a bit. Even if she is not 'accessible' her voice, using fluffy clouds is yet clear and saying, "HAHAHAHA!" as she and her broomstick (one of finest straw) travels 'neath the moonlit sky. No Mita, I did NOT 'copy' those words from a famous poet...they are mine...MINE, do ya hear? --Oh! you KNEW that? Hmmmmmmm!

Bye, sweet witches, I've got places to go and things to do--trying to sound 'busy'! CU all later.

Vilt og vakkert said...

Heisann!

I did both when I was 14, fell in love... and fell (embarrassing)!

I love your illustrations... Have I said that before??? ;:OD)

Steve E said...

WARNING! SERIOUS:

Mita, I feel ESpecially blest today, this moment--I had to look up the Wiccan's Rede (I knew WHAT it was but had never read it)..Simply beautiful. If only we males could adopt / adapt a creed similar. Oh, what a world where we could live!

WARNING! Not QUITE so serious:

That little thingy right by her oar blade, is it 'just a' fish, or is it 'just "x"'? Is she scooping it up. When I played with the piece a bit, it almost looked like a violin (Ha! "played with"--grin!), which she is trying to hit with the oar. NO NEED TO RESPOND!!!
I gotta GO!

Bella Sinclair said...

Row row row, my dear. Sometimes I want to live in my coffee cup, just padding down an endless stream of caffeine and cream. Yet another beautiful and melancholy illustration and poem. I love the splatters. Please do not be shy with me. You will see, I am nothing but a giant goofball. Your visits always honor me!

Jhordyn Ashley said...

You have a gorgeous world here bird, I have only so far had a glance but you shall definitely be seeing more of me. Just lovely!

xx and hugs

Jhordyn

"i'm not deep.
i'm not an intellectual.
i'm not an artist.
i'm not a critic.
i'm not a poet.
i just have internet access."

I wish I thought of that!
That is so funny.
I must think of something.

Steve E said...

I know what is a 'rune'...

"Don't you go touching my yet wet painting. You're gonna rune it."

Steve E said...

Did you visit Atiyanna?

She's nice. Fav witch....

Don't be jell-uhs.

Steve E said...

I like your equation: modern art. You're good at math. Do you think Ces is asleep?

OMG! While the Grandewitch sleeps
Her children play
In the fields
Of mown hay

Steve E said...

Is 'mown' a word?
No?
Good!
I like to use non-words

All words one day were non-words.

Steve E said...

I'm finished! How you say it? :D

Finished for the day is the evil thereof.....

Richard Ewing said...

the textures and color choices rule the mood.
nice.

Cécile said...

This is lovely!

fine said...

I love the way you work on different layers, it's so subtle and sophisticated !

Rrramone said...

Beautiful!!! As always. :-)

Deborah said...

You so lovely. How could I have stayed away from all this beauty for so long? Naughty me. Oh such melancholy stirring about...makes me sigh.
**kisskiss** Deb

Andrew Finnie said...

Hey, I was eating a sour plum when I saw this. Lucky me. :)

Tell you why later.

Tammie Lee said...

tenderly sad and yet I smile
textured background makes me look and look and see a wee face
such a wonderful piece
no, my unicorn does not have a diary, so sorry
perhaps it tells it's tales someday.... another way.

Glen Batoca said...

Hi Mita!
I'm fine!I am on vacation in the blog! I have only accessed the facebook, I'm only posting new jobs there. I stopped one time with the caricatures and I'm painting some canvas.
All the best to you!

Renée said...

cute!

Simon Phan said...

Thanks for the compliment (:
what a honest liar you have here!

Ana said...

:(

...but there's more dinner service around, right?guess you'll have to give me another cup then xD

...oh, don't forget I'm gonna need a spoon too.

Andrew Finnie said...

Just have internet access? What a crackup :)

deepazartz said...

Fantastic!!! Love it...so adorable...

urbandon (Don Pezzano) said...

I love your world and want to live there.

This is lovely!

Steve E said...

"since i'm not an artist/illustrator/whatever"

Do you play a violin? That is listed as 'whatever'

I went to Friday Illustrator URL and viewed your entry. Then I wanted to write Briana.

They only put up half of it.

Steve E said...

Glad you came over to visit

I am honored. Truly.

And I know why you cry...I can sense it. To stop suddenly would be like a fish stop swimming.

To say to Mita, Please don't cry
Like telling a bird: Please don't fly.

Ana said...

hey, did you see this?
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-qgWChSQUaqs/TWjE6bI926I/AAAAAAAAFGA/HO63iioVCFE/s1600/Audrey%2BHepburn.jpg
I wanna know how that portrait came out :P

heidialdin said...

Bravo! Bravo!

:)

Steve E said...

Portrait does not look like the incomparable Audry Hepburn to me...there I am. Judgmental! WHEN is it going to stop? What do you mean I have to make a decision?

Steve E said...

MITA, since I answer comments on my own blog--figure you might miss these comments to one who is not an artist nor an illustrator:

SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL!
hello :) im so glad you broomed in here today. Been busy--miss the bantering, I thrive on it. Don't cry now--grin!

MITA!
I like that dimple- :')) Mine is on other side- :,))
Congratulations to you, a non-artist, non-illustrator and a non-whatever...for being chosen as "pic-of-the-week" on Illustration Friday. Or is that "Non-Illustration Friday"?

Steve E said...

If I keep commenting, I'll make the coveted Number "100"...

Steve E said...

Does #100 win a prize? :,))

tera said...

New visitor to your blog, so I have no reference for this work, but it is, simply put, quite lovely! I will be back... ❀

whiteoctopus said...

Mita!

I am late, so sorry...
But such a beautiful illo this week, and definitley deserved to be picked for last weeks topic! I am in awe of the beauty that you convey through your illustrations and your words.
:)

De Wilde said...

Strange, I just had 2 posts you did in November last year appear in my RSS feed? Fearless? The fish!

I wish I was fearless!
I wish I could turn back time.

Your new illustration is beautiful by the way! The falling is infatuation, the lying lover I would like to set adrift in a teacup, but she is already lost.

Linda Hensley said...

Lovely piece. Congrats on being pick of the week!

William Cook said...

But I thought witches were old and ugly.

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

I love this kind of art and writing. Your profile page is funny!

Ces said...

William Cook "But I thought witches were old and ugly."

Heheheh!

He has not met the modern witches. Actually the witches of late were young and beautiful too. They just were afraid to be burnt at the stake as toddlers.

Hahahah!

I am back!

Ces said...

What?!!! What is this "approval" thing for comments? Hehehe!

ihateoliverninnis said...

really nice, is it photoshopped or did u actually paint onto the what i think is wallpaper? its a beeeauty

Ilaria Benedetti said...

Congratulations, my dear, for being the pick of the week ;)

Ces said...

Noooooooooo!!! You sure are stirring me crazy! Do not say that. Repeat: do not say what you said on my blog. Let's have coffee first. Okay?

Your Nine poem is fabulous. I love that. You are a mental ninja! Tsup!!!

Andrew Finnie said...

Well I couldn't think of a more talented person to steal a skull from :)

Ces said...

You know Mita, I also feel the same way. What you said earlier.

Andrew Finnie said...

Oh you are, you are. Denying a truth doesn't make it an untruth.

Andrew Finnie said...

Hmm should that be a :D ?

Steve E said...

(Another rune of your wrist bone, Mita--grin!)

Hey, what's going on? Or..." 'sup?" (NOT TSUP!) 'sup is Greek for "what's up?" As in "'sup, man?"
--Not really Greek, either...just U.S. slang.

Hey girl--each time I read (hello steve) I smile. It lets me realize how good it is to be remembered...and so tomorrow I will begin by 'remembering' some of my Peeps, and have YOOO to thank for it!

SEE? See how one Peep with two words in parentheses can have an effect on the doings of another Peep?

Have a wonderful weekend, maybe I'll see that (Hello Steve) somewhere.

I wish your sadness lessens by the day--but experience tells me "No"...

PEACE!

OMG this one is so gorgeous! how do you come up with these images??!! the colours and that cool frame... ahhhhh, you're killing me! :D
The creative goblin within me is greeting the creative fairy within you :D
YOUR WORK IS AMAZING!

really really really old friend here.

Steve E said...

(hi, Lakhsmita!) *LOVE that name!*

From half a world away
I try to stand...but sway
Chuckling, laughing smiling
At your words--beguiling

But then, remembering who are yooo
Recalling what you witches dooo

I'll just bet Cessi is reading tooo...

(Secret) Last night I dreamt
About this dancing elephant
Could not understand what it said
Though it was hanging by my head

And a little baby crying
Just knew then I was dying
"Breathe, breathe, keep trying"
Elephant "Flex" was whispering.
Mita, I appreciate your visit--that you can see
This way is exactly how things work for me...

Thank you, True lifter of Spirit
I believe, and with only that
I am satisfied.

I am a person considered offensive to society, nineteenth century tell a thousand views, I visited your blog and I love, a hug from Reus Catalonia and many thanks for visiting my blog, you are a very brave person.

O, that beautiful bird won't save anybody.

donny* said...

There are so many things to love here. The bird, of course. The expression. The tea cup. Patterns, oh my! But the thing I like the most is what it says. Very strong mind. I love it!

Andrew Finnie said...

I've always wanted to be a tap dancer... well just for the last few minutes anyway. :)

Andrew Finnie said...

Oh I forgot to say that your comment crackled me up :D But seriously. :)

Jack Foster said...

Hey Mita! You fooled me with your incognito avatar! I was like....”who is that ? “ You are a riot. Thanks for the laugh. I just got an invitation from a fairy to an island that beyond the edges of the map. Maybe you heard of this place where sickness and death do not exist. It is a place of eternal youth and beauty. Music,strength, life and pleasure all come together in this one place. Happiness lasts forever and no one is ever thirsty or hungry. Do you know of such a place? :o)

Ana said...

but I would form a good opinion, the avatar makes me think about alice in wonderland ♥
I guess I need to look for some balinese paintings, it's not the first time someone tells me that...Maybe it is similar to some peruvian art. In some cultures in the past there was this fear of empty spaces so they were filled with different patterns...now I just think I do it for the fun of drawing as I don't make any previous research in art history, just doodle XD

Ana said...

is that a naked bunny? Probably it's not the same version of Alice in wonderland I read.

Ana said...

Ok,I won't judge you or the bunny.

Miss Go Lightly said...

Hello my darling Mita! I've missed you dearly! I just happened to log in yesterday and saw your comment. It was sooo great to hear from you :) I hope all is well with you! As always your work is absolutely marvelous dahhling!

Hugs from Goobie and me,

Today I decided to just do it: I made up my mind to push my way right into this mass of comments and say a few words myself:

-Awesome... Memorable... Touching.

I am speechless. Your art and your words are amazing! I am glad I found you.

nogihilt said...

I really enjoyed this post. You write about this topic very well. There are many cherished moments in life, why not wear a beautiful dress! When looking back on special memories of your child wearing a gorgeous dress, it will make a fond memory.

lasalgasmesientanbien said...

Well, Lakhsmita, again, a beautiful work!
This is really a picture of your growth!
Give me a reason to say that this can not be hung on the wall of an art gallery and then I'll tell you do not paint anymore. I do not think you find a single valid reason. Paint for more!

Romina Ortega Mella said...

your work is very beautiful and magic,
never stop to do it :)
